Geoffrey A. Vance was quoted in the July 1 issue of California Lawyer Magazine in an article regarding the increasing importance of e-discovery expertise. Mr. Vance, the co-chair of McDermott's new Electronic Data Management, Privacy & Discovery Practice Group, noted that the group was a long time coming. "We had a task force since the late 1990s, but we suddenly had an epiphany: We're proud of our expertise, and decided we should let our current and prospective clients know about that." He added that although the Firm began by promoting its e-discovery services to existing clients, this has changed with the launch of the new practice group. "We have already started to hear from new clients who have asked us for help on these issues," he said.
